California Kindergarten Association
"I attended USTA Conference in Provo, Utah in February and found your keynote speech to be very inspiring. I am very interested in brain health and how to address it in the classroom. Since I heard your talk, I have been giving my students more engaging science activities and I have noticed that they are learning faster, remembering more and excited to come to class; in addition, they are more willing to do their written work in a quality way." "Thank you for a superb presentation at our Utah Science Teachers Association conference a couple weeks ago. I'd love to share what you shared with my administrators and a few other teachers."

"I attended your presentation at the HASTI conference last week. Before saying anything else, I want to thank you for such an incredibly interesting and highly information educational presentation."

Thanks for making our conference so engaging and, hopefully, you received some great feedback. People are already asking for your keynote presentation, so I will make it available to all.

Georgia Science Teachers Association
"Thank you so much for your tremendous contributions to the ISEA conference. Your keynote presentation was perfect for our organization--the best keynote in our history, and I know I wasn't the only one that felt that way! I especially appreciate the extra time that you spent at the conference networking with our members, sharing some amazing ideas, and offering your sage advice. That counts as going above and beyond the call of duty! Personally, I think we could have had a "Day with Dr. Ken Wesson" at the conference. (Perhaps that is not a bad idea for a future conference.)"
Informal Science Education Association of Texas conference
You were awesome! I thoroughly enjoyed your speech. Even as a psychiatrist, I learned quite a bit from your keynote address, as well as about how to engage an audience. You demonstrate what you advocate by your presentation style, and it's a winning strategy."
"What a powerful presentation you just delivered at the STEAM symposium! Your address provided me with concrete information that I can use with my colleagues and our parent community about the brain benefits of STEAM education. Thank you so much for your humor, intelligence, and insight." "Thank you for your inspirational keynote and follow-up workshop. I appreciated the science-based content on how the brain works, and also your empathetic tone during the presentation and the class. In addition, you used brain-based techniques to get us talking, drawing, moving, and being creative. It was a pleasant way to spend my Saturday with other people who care so much about education."
However, the highlight of the entire event for me was Dr. Kenneth Wesson. I listened in awe to his keynote address. It was during that time that I knew I had to attend his breakout session. Again, he did not disappoint. AWESOME is not a big enough word to describe this man! It was as if he took my beliefs about teaching and threw some neurosciences into them to back them up and give them validity for us. And then he showed me new ways to incorporate this information into how my classroom functions. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for bringing him in to speak to us. I had never heard of him before, but I will be following him and his work very closely now!
I thoroughly enjoyed his presentation at the NSTA conference on July 29th. It was the best presentation that I attended! Thank you so much for your presentation! It was absolutely the best session I attended. I attended your talk on Friday of the STEM conference titled "Teaching for Invention and Creativity." First of all, I would like to tell you how much I enjoyed the session. It was my favorite session during the entire conference (and there were a number of great sessions). I only wish that it had been longer!
NSTA STEM Conference
"Dr. Wesson is an outstanding presenter. His explanation of the evolution and the importance of STEM was enlightening. I loved how he engaged the audience by having us create along with him as he discussed "materials engineering." I never truly understood the concept in practice before -- now I do."
